This spring we have some amazing clematis blooms after years of trying (about 20 years, but who’s counting), and going through many clematis plants that haven’t made it for reasons unknown to us. Our patience finally paid off. Yay!!
These two clematis vines are starting their 4th season. The first 2 springs we had no blooms at all. Last year we had maybe 5 or 6 pitiful looking blooms on each plant. And this year? Well see for yourself.
The clematis below is not growing as vigorously as the one above, even though they were planted at the same time. But, it’s still doing much better than we ever thought it would.
